Jeremy Clarkson on Public Sector Strikes

Top Gear host Jeremy Clarkson slams striking public service workers in London on The One Show in November, causing uproar abroad. In response, BBC -- which issued an apology shortly thereafter -- decided to pull an episode of the pre-taped game show QI (filmed in the summer) that featured an appearance by the Brit because of Clarkson's controversial statements about the workers. During his One Show appearance, he had said that the workers "should be executed in front of their families."
